Alive Peer Support Program

Alive is part of the Community Support Program and currently serves around 100 adults living with mental illness and/or addiction.

This is a program that embraces hope, empowerment and resiliency and brings together people who are experiencing similar life circumstances. Alive offers the opportunity for peer-to-peer support within a system that meets the challenges presented by lack of transportation (Alive provides free transportation in the local area) and a fixed income (events are low cost or free). Operating on evenings and weekends, when clinical support is less likely to be available, Alive is staffed by Peer Recovery Specialists; specifically trained individuals who share the lived experience of mental illness and/or addiction.

Alive members enjoy activities in the community

The Alive Peer Support Program is not a drop-in center—Alive events happen in the community. 

Activities appeal to a wide-range of interests

A few examples:

Beach Trips
County Fairs
Advocacy Events and Conferences
Shopping Trips
Seasonal Festivities and Parties

Alive also offers classes and events after hours at The Wellness and Recovery Center of Community Care Alliance. Events include arts/crafts and drawing classes, karaoke, and game nights. More about the Wellness & Recovery Center

The Alive Advisory Committee, comprised primarily of Alive members and Peer Recovery Specialists, provides valuable guidance and input to the program and assists with fund-raising endeavors.
